Assign variable to each quantify and write two equations than can be used to answer part b. We can assign number of borogroves as variable x and number of mome raths as variable y.
From the statements given above, we can set the following equations:
The forest has total 73 creatures:
x+y=73 (1)
Total number of legs is 210 where number of borogroves’ legs is 2x, number of mome raths’ legs is 4y. Therefore, we have the equation:
2x+4y=210...
